Despite the length of time it has been around, its importance, and vast amounts of research, combustion is still far from being completely understood. Environmental, cost, and fuel consumption issues add further complexity, particularly in the process and power generation industries. Dedicated to advancing the art and science of industrial combustion, The John Zink Hamworthy Combustion Handbook, Second Edition: Volume One – Fundamentals gives you a strong understanding of the basic concepts and theory. Under the leadership of Charles E. Baukal, Jr., top combustion engineers and technologists from John Zink Hamworthy Combustion examine the interdisciplinary fundamentals—including chemistry, fluid flow, and heat transfer—as they apply to industrial combustion.

Key Features:-

  • Expanded to three volumes, with Volume One focusing on fundamentals
  • Extensive updates and revisions throughout
  • Expanded coverage of the physical and chemical principles of combustion
  • New practices in coal combustion, such as gasification
  • The latest developments in cold-flow modeling, CFD-based modeling, and mathematical modeling
